Into The Unknown

Hey, look! A Friday post! And why did I remember this week? Because I’ve released a special bonus episode of Someone Else’s Movie today, and you need to know about it!

Why a bonus episode? Because it’s a little smaller and a little less polished, and with a long weekend coming up I figured I should shower y’all in delicious audio content. So please enjoy Oscar-nominated filmmaker and absolute legend Agnieszka Holland on Andrei Tarkovsky’s eerie masterwork Stalker.

We only had twenty minutes, but we went surprisingly deep. Find it at all the usual spots: Subscribe on Apple PodcastsGoogle Play and Stitcher and get the episode immediately, or download it directly from the web. It’s worth it!

(Also, Agnieszka’s new film Mr. Jones is available on demand right now and it’s pretty intense.)

And feel free to dig into all the other stuff I’ve put out this week, including today’s very special Pride episode of NOW What and  reviews of CBC Gem’s Queens, Netflix’ new documentary Disclosure and Jon Stewart’s risible Irresistible.

I also wrote things about TIFF’s 2020 reformulation and Netflix acquiring the bulk of the Studio Ghibli catalogue, which would also offer a very nice way to pass the time this weekend. And don’t skip over Only Yesterday or When Marnie Was There; they’re not as well-known as the Totoros or the Mononokes, but they’re pretty wonderful in their own quiet way.

Anyway, that’s my week. More on Tuesday, you’ll see.
